DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, 13th March, 2017- Infoblox Inc., the network control company that provides Actionable Network Intelligence, today announced that it has been named ‘Network Management Vendor of the Year’ by Network Middle East (NME), the region's leading magazine for the networking industry, at the 2017 edition of the NME Innovation awards. The award was presented to Infoblox for having the most comprehensive network/ data management solution in the region.
The NME award event organizers stated that ‘Network management is an increasingly essential service as regional organizations look to deliver simple, fast and less expensive network services, while also dealing with network convergence and 24/7 availability of applications. Infoblox revolutionized network services in 1999 when the company delivered the first hardened DNS appliance. In 2015 the company was recognized by IDC as the market-share leader in enterprise-grade DNS, DHCP, and IP address management. They are deserved winners of the award.’
Ashraf Sheet, Regional Director, Middle East and Africa at Infoblox said, “Network landscapes are rapidly evolving, driven by trends in security, virtualization, cloud, IPv6 adoption, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Conventional network management solutions are manual, fragmented, and vulnerable to attack. They are no longer able to keep pace with the exponential growth of devices, IP traffic, and sophisticated security threats. Infoblox puts enterprises in command over this shifting landscape and empowers them to overcome any networking obstacles they face today and down the road. This award is recognition of our regional leadership and success and we endeavor to continue to bring innovation to the market.”
For 17 years, Infoblox has been the market leader for core network services, including DNS, DHCP, and IP address management, a category known as DDI. The company has taken its extensive experience in DDI technology to create an Actionable Network Intelligence Platform. It goes beyond DDI to enable organizations to harness insights derived from the rivers of data moving through the network to enhance all aspects of network management, security, agility, and cost control.
As the longest running and most credible awards programme for the networking community in the Middle East, winning an NME Innovation Award is considered to be a true benchmark of success.
